Originally a house facing Sabine was in the middle of 3 lots on the SW corner of Lubbock and Sabine. Something happened to that house, and in about 1911 two identical 2-story houses were built facing Sabine at 615 and 617 Sabine on the two corner lots. The Classical Revival cottage at 1807 Lubbock was built in about 1911 on the remaining interior lot. 615 and 617 Sabine burned in 1989 and in 1994, respectively, and were replaced by the houses currently at 1801 and 1803 Lubbock.
In 1949 Ben Luna and his wife Ignacia bought 1807 Lubbock. It was their home until they sold the house to their son Javier Luna in 1980; in 1990 he won a Good Brick award from Preservation Houston for the restoration of the house.
